What is Disney Plus?

Who should sign up for Disney Plus?

Disney Plus is the perfect service for Disney fans, whether they’re Marvel geeks or animation aficionados. It’s especially suitable for families with children who want to immerse themselves in the vast world of Disney.

The service has been a clear hit since day one. Disney announced that more than 10 million people subscribed to Disney Plus on the first day. The Disney Plus app was also downloaded more than 3.2 million times on the first day.

If you’re someone who always ends up searching for Disney shows and movies on another streaming service anyway, you might want to consider subscribing to Disney Plus because it holds all that content in one convenient place.

What shows and movies can I watch on Disney Plus?

Disney+/Business Insider

In short, virtually all of the Disney shows and movies that have already been released. You can cry through Pixar’s “Coco” and “Up,” learn about the world around you through a Nat Geo documentary, and satisfy your comedic itch with an episode of “The Simpsons.” You’ll have access to classics like “Snow White” along with recent hits like “Captain Marvel.”

With that said, some Disney titles, like “Black Panther,” are still temporarily missing from Disney Plus. Their absence is due to existing licensing deals with other services and networks, and all of the missing titles will be added at a later date.

Disney Plus also includes all-new, exclusive original programming, such as a “Star Wars” TV series focused on a Mandalorian bounty hunter, a retelling of “Lady and the Tramp” featuring Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux, and a new perspective on the familiar objects in our lives through “The World According to Jeff Goldblum.” The strong lineup of original Disney content alone could make a Disney Plus subscription worth it.

These are the best original shows and movies to watch on Disney Plus right now:

  1. “The Mandalorian” The Western-style take on “Star Wars” takes place five years after the fall of the Empire and focuses on a bounty hunter who journeys far out into the galaxy.
  2. “Pixar in Real Life” This hidden camera show features interactions between Pixar characters and people in the real world.
  3. “The World According to Jeff Goldblum” Journey along with Jeff Goldblum (“Jurassic Park,” “Thor: Ragnarok”) as he travels the world to explore subjects that are of interest to him, including how tattoos, ice cream, and sneakers are made and developed.
  4. “Marvel Hero Project” The “Marvel Hero Project” pays tribute to extraordinary kids who have helped their community. In each episode, the kids will be surprised with the honor of being made into a Super Hero with their very own Marvel Comic.
  5. “Lady and the Tramp” This live-action retelling of the 1955 Disney classic “Lady and the Tramp” has an all-star cast, including Tessa Thompson (“Westworld,” “Thor:Ragnarok”) as the voice of Lady and Justin Theroux (“The Leftovers,” “Maniac”) as the voice of Tramp.

When is the release date for Disney Plus?

Disney Plus is now live and available to stream. It launched on November 12, 2019.

How does Disney Plus compare to other streaming services?

While services such as Netflix and Hulu cast a wide net over movie and TV entertainment, Disney Plus is much more focused and narrow in scope by revolving entirely around Disney content. Luckily, it doesn’t actually feel that limited since Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Television create everything from animated kids’ movies to action and sci-fi thrillers. At this point, it’s difficult to find someone who isn’t a Disney fan in some capacity — with Disney Plus, there’s a movie or series for everyone.

It’s a major plus that Disney Plus (for the time being) is launching with zero ads. We don’t know whether that will change down the line, or whether it will add tiered ad pricing like some other streaming services, but in the meantime, we always appreciate ad-free streaming.

At less than $10 a month, it’s very affordable compared to major competitors. If you find the Disney content of other streaming services lacking, subscribing to Disney Plus is an affordable way to fix that problem.

Of all the major streaming services, it’s also the most generous in the areas of multiple-device streaming and profile additions. You can stream on up to four devices simultaneously and add up to seven profiles.

How do I sign up for Disney Plus?

You can sign up on the Disney Plus website.

Disney Plus has taken on a heavily-populated landscape of streaming competitors with a family-friendly offering that has something for everyone. Its focused library of content from the Disney vault, Star Wars, Marvel and more makes it a very different proposition to Netflix, and Amazon.

But how much does Disney Plus cost? We’ve got everything you need to know about the Disney Plus price below, including all the details on bundles and deals.

While Disney Plus – or Disney+ if that’s your kind of thing – launched initially in the US, Canada and the Netherlands and has now rolled out in Australia and New Zealand, too. UK and the rest of Europe…you’ll just have to wait.

This is just the start, too, as Disney+ has a whole heap of exclusive movies and shows in the works. If this sounds like something you need in your life, you can get it in certain territories now.

As well as having access to nearly every movie and animated feature from Disney’s huge library, subscribers will also get access to movies and exclusive new live-action Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe spin-offs. Couple all that with a huge vault of movies thanks to Disney’s recent acquisition of 21st Century Fox plus National Geographic content and you have a pretty awesome proposition, with more than 25 original series and ten exclusive films promised in the first year.

Read on as we explain how much you can expect to pay for the new service and its bundles. We’ll tell you about the Disney Plus price, and how its bundles compare to other TV streaming services.

What price does Disney Plus cost?

In the US, a month-by-month flat subscription to sign up for Disney Plus costs $6.99 per month. Nice and straightforward. But there’s a saving to be had if you go for Disney’s 12-month option, with a year’s subscription costing $69.99 for the year (so $5.83/month). If you’re wavering, there’s a seven-day free trial to see whether you want to sign up for the full subscription, too.

In Canada, a Disney Plus subscription is $8.99 per month (or $89.99 per year) and the Disney Plus price is €6.99 per month (or €69.99 per year) in the Netherlands. Australians will pay $8.99 per month (or $89.99 per year), and the subscription cost in New Zealand is $9.99 per month (or $99.99 per year). In the UK? You still have a little while to wait, with the latest news that Disney+ will land on British shores on March 24 this year.

Supported devices for the service include iPhone, iPad, PS4, Xbox One, Apple TV, Roku, Chromecast, Chromebooks and Android, but as yet, there’s no word on whether you’ll be able to access Disney Plus via Amazon Fire TV devices yet. You’ll be able to make multiple profiles and the apps will stream 4K Ultra HD video at no extra charge.

Below, we’ll take a look at how Disney Plus prices compare to other major streaming services in the US.

Disney Plus bundles: consider your options

There’s no doubt about it: the entry-level Disney Plus price is very reasonable indeed and compares very favorably to the competition (more on which below).

But before you go and pledge your $6.99 a month, it’s worth taking a moment to see if you can get more bang for your buck.

In the US, Disney is also offering a bundle package of Disney Plus along with its two other streaming services – Hulu and ESPN+ – for a knockdown $12.99 a month – that’s $5 cheaper than subscribing to all three separately. That’s a ridiculously low price for such a lot of content.

On the Hulu side of things, that means access to a library of something like 1,500+ shows and 2,500+ films (to add to the thousands of titles you;re going to get on Disney Plus). So that’s all of Hulu’s original programming and co-productions, including The Handmaid’s Tale, Catch-22 and Little Monsters. In addition to classic content like old and new episodes of Saturday Night Live.

And the ESPN+ bolt-on is a great little extra for the sport fan in the family. The streaming service’s reputation has grown exponentially since launch and has won the rights to some of the biggest events on the globe. From exclusive UFC and boxing events, to daily MLB and NHL games and even golf and tennis majors. Oh, and a whole host of original ESPN programming, too.

Head here to sign up for the great value Disney Plus bundle.

How to get a year of Disney Plus for free

Well there’s that 7-day free trial for a start, but what about when that’s finished.

Well, the good news for Verizon customers in the States is that subscribers to its 4G LTE, 5G unlimited wireless, or Fios home internet services will get a free year’s subscription to Disney Plus. That’s a great little perk, and we’ll soon see if other major retailers come up with their own promotions.

How does the Disney Plus price compare to Netflix?

With its impressive catalogue, Disney Plus is arguably the number one rival to Netflix – the world’s current most popular streaming service. Netflix of course boasts an almost five-times larger library of content, with a wide array of grown-up exclusive hits like Stranger Things, The Crown and Black Mirror, Oscar-winning original movies like Roma, plus a huge library of family-friendly content and curated kids section.

A Netflix Basic plan costs $9 a month, but that only lets you stream one movie at a time and only in SD resolution. A Standard subscription costs $13 and includes two simultaneous streams and HD resolution, while a four-screen Ultra HD Premium plan will set you back $16. So Disney Plus is undoubtedly cheaper on every level.

How does Disney Plus price compare to Amazon Prime?

Online behemoth Amazon’s online video service may not have produced quite as many big hits as Netflix when it comes to its own original content, but it can boast a much deeper library than its rival, with four times as many movies and access to top-notch classic TV such as Lost, Parks and Recreation and The X-Files. It’ll also be the home of a massive new TV adaptation of The Lord of the Rings and the upcoming Star Trek: Picard series.

A single Amazon Prime membership is $12.99 per month or $119 per year if you choose to pay annually, which allows you to stream content to two devices at once. While this may on the face of it seem pricey, this also includes Amazon Prime membership, giving you access to same-day or one-day shipping on Amazon.com purchases, plus photo storage and access to exclusive deals.

How does Disney Plus price compare to Hulu?

Despite being a majority Disney-owned service, Hulu is, in some ways, a competitor to Disney Plus at launch.

Boasting award winning Hulu Originals like Handmaid’s Tale, Difficult People and Future Man, the on-demand service is also bolstered by its new IPTV offering which adds over 50 live TV channels, including live sports broadcasts. The service has three main pricing tiers, a basic $5.99-a-month ad-supported option, a $11.99 ad-free monthly tier, and the aforementioned Hulu with Live TV which comes in at $54.99-per-month, with HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and Starz all also available as add-ons.

It’s worth noting that while you can bundle in Hulu with Disney Plus as mentioned above, this doesn’t include an option for Hulu’s live TV service.

How does Disney Plus price compare to YouTube TV?

Aimed squarely at cord-cutters, YouTube TV is Google’s attempt at a service similar to Sling TV, offering live TV to your phone, tablet and streaming device without a costly cable subscription and contract. Currently exclusive to the US, YouTube TV allows six people in the family to access the service and will allow up to three of them tune in simultaneously and also offers unlimited storage for recorded shows for up to nine months.

A recent price hike has seen the flat fee for YouTube TV go up to $49.99 per month, which is nevertheless much cheaper than a regular cable contract. Users can also add additional channels to their line-up, including AMC Premiere ($5 per month,) NBA League Pass ($39.99 per month) and Showtime ($7 per month).

How does Disney Plus price compare to HBO Now?

HBO Now is Home Box Office’s response to the cord-cutting revolution, with the app-based standalone subscription service not requiring you to have a cable box.

The service costs a straightforward $14.99 per month and gives you full access to the network’s incredible library of exclusive shows such as Game of Thrones, The Sopranos and Watchmen. It’s available via apps on iOS, Android and Amazon Kindle Fire, and can also be accessed on PCS and Macs via the HBO Now website and consoles such as Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Disney

Baby Yoda is finally making his way to the UK – a little sooner than we expected. Disney has confirmed that its streaming service will launch in the UK on March 24 – a week earlier than had been planned.

More significantly than the date shuffle, Disney has confirmed how much it will cost in the UK: £5.99 per month or slightly discounted rate of £59.99 if you take out a year-long subscription. The Netflix rival will go live in Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland on the same day.

It’ll launch in other countries in Europe later this year, Disney says. While you wait for the rollout, here’s what you need to know about Disney+.

Why should I get excited about another streaming service?

For years Netflix has enjoyed a pretty unrivalled time at the top of the streaming industry. But now old media companies are starting to catch up. And Disney looks amongst the best-placed.

As well as Disney+, which launched in the US in late 2019, Apple has also joined the party with Apple TV+ (to limited fanfare) and public broadcasters in the UK revealed BritBox (for classic British TV). In the US, the likes of Hulu, HBO and CBS have also upped their respective games.

Why the sudden surge in investment? It’s all about intellectual property. Big production companies that previously sold the rights to their films and TV shows to Netflix are now going it alone. If you want a telling example of the value in this: WarnerMedia terminated its £100 million deal with Netflix so it could exclusively make Friends available to HBO Max subscribers.

So what’s the deal with Disney+?

Disney is huge. The company owns the rights to all Pixar films, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.

As well as its classic titles, Disney is also commissioning new shows that can only be watched on Disney_: Baby Yoda’s The Mandalorian being the most meme-worthy so far.

Disney hasn’t confirmed which of its older shows will be included at launch in the UK. There’s a good chance that The Simpsons may not be included. Based on what we know so far, here’s our pick of the best shows coming to Disney+ when it launches in the UK.

If it’s got a screen and you can connect it to the internet, chances are Disney+ will work on it. The service is coming to connected TVs, games consoles, streaming boxes and sticks (such as Google’s Chromecast and Amazon’s FireTV sticks) and smartphones.

One £5.99 subscription allows four different people to watch Disney+ simultaneously, without adverts, and unlimited downloads on ten different devices. Like Netflix there are also different profiles for individual users and parental controls. One big change for the UK launch of Disney+ is that the company will be shutting down its existing DisneyLife streaming service, which has been around in the UK since 2015.

Why has Disney+ taken so long to come to the UK?

Disney+ launched in America on November 12 but has taken several months to launch around the rest of the world. In the UK, there’s one big reason for the delay: Sky. In particular, the launch date is tied to licensing agreements that already exist for Disney films and shows.

Up until December 2019, Sky held the rights to broadcast Grey’s Anatomy and a selection of Marvel’s movies. It’s believed that many of Sky’s contracts with Disney expire before the streaming service launches in the UK. However, it also appears that Sky and Disney+ will sign a new deal to allow the streaming service to be integrated into its programming guide.

How does the price of Disney+ compare to Netflix?

By now, you’re probably getting tired of new subscription services. And Disney knows this. Disney+ is cheaper than some competitors, particularly if you take into account the amount of shows and movies that it can make available from its vast back catalogue.

The UK price of £5.99 per month makes it as cheap as its rivals. Netflix’s cheapest plan starts at £5.99 per month, Apple TV+ is £4.99, BritBox is £5.99 and Now TV’s entertainment package is £8.99, while Amazon Prime, which includes free deliveries on purchased products, is £7.99 per month.

However, there are some differences that may make Disney+’s offering more attractive. Some of Disney+ content, it’s not been confirmed which in the UK yet, will be available in 4K. By contrast, Netflix’s £5.99 plan doesn’t include any 4K or HD video.

It’s still early days, but Disney’s strategy seems to be working in the US. Analytics firm Sensor Tower has estimated that its app has been downloaded 40.9 million times on Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store, potentially earning it $97 million (£74m). While these downloads don’t equate to paying subscribers and only cover mobile devices, they show a promising start for Disney’s streaming ambitions.

Disney Plus guide

Disney Plus, officially called Disney+, is the streaming service from Disney that began launching around the world in November 2019. It’s the House of Mouse’s equivalent to Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, and the studio throwing all its big guns at this video streamer to make it happen: Disney Plus is now the streaming home of Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and even 20th Century Fox (which includes The Simpsons).

Disney had 10 million sign-ups in week one, showing people really want the service. A steady global rollout has commenced: it’s launched in the USA, Australia, New Zealand and The Netherlands. Disney Plus UK launches on March 24, along with Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland.

The main appeal of Disney Plus, beyond having eventually having every Disney movie in one place for a reasonable subscription fee, is its slate of original content. We’ve already had The Mandalorian, which gave us the Baby Yoda phenomenon, but in late 2020 we’ll get to see The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision, the first TV shows to officially be part of the MCU canon.

Throughout 2020 as contracts with other streamers expire, more movies from Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar and Disney will be added to the service, making the service even more desirable.

Below, read our guide to Disney Plus, including a list of movies we know are coming to the service in 2020.

How to sign up to Disney Plus

If you’re in the US, Canada or the Netherlands, you can sign up for Disney Plus here, or . No matter where you live, there’s a 7-day trial that’ll let you see if the service is right for you. You can also sign up to a bundle (US-only) that includes ESPN+ and Hulu’s Basic package for $12.99 a month, which saves $5 on subscribing to the services individually.

ESPN+, of course, is for the sports plan in your life. Hulu, meanwhile, hosts a lot of shows from other networks, like South Park and Rick and Morty, as well as having its own originals like The Handmaid’s Tale. While Disney Plus is family-friendly, adult-oriented content can be found on Hulu.

Disney Plus: our verdict

(Image credit: Disney)

We’ve published our Disney Plus review, and we’re mostly positive about the service. It’s not as comprehensive as its competitors like Netflix, but having this selection of blockbuster movies in one place is very enticing. While not every Disney movie has made the leap yet, we’re seeing that selection grow as the months go on.

It really helps that The Mandalorian has arrived in the launch window, to give people an idea of how much Disney is willing to spend on original content. But a lot of its best shows, like the Marvel series coming to Disney Plus, feel a little far away. That’s the only note of caution we have on the streaming service right now.

Not everything from the Disney back catalogue is pure gold, especially when you get to the straight-to-VHS movies of the ’90s, but that’s to be expected with a platform of this breadth.

Disney Plus movies coming in 2020

While Disney Plus launched with a whole payload of movies, many more are coming after release, right into 2021 and beyond.

Both 2019 remakes of Aladdin and The Lion King were released on the service in January 2020. Disney Plus has a handy feature where if you search for existing movies that aren’t yet on the service, it’ll give you a date of when they arrive.

You won’t find release dates for all its recent movies via this method, but you’ll find plenty that do have them. Here are some highlights of movies coming to Disney Plus beginning in 2020:

Expect more of Disney’s recent movies to come to Disney Plus in 2020, too, like Frozen 2, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. 2020 movies like Mulan, Black Widow, Soul, Onward, Artemis Fowl, and Jungle Cruise could arrive by the year’s end as well.

As you can see, Disney Plus has launched on pretty much every major platform. Disney confirmed the list of platforms that will support Disney Plus sometime before launch. It includes Apple TV, Roku streaming devices, Google Chromecast, iOS and Android, PS4 and Xbox One – as well as the Android TV platform that supports Nvidia Shield TV, Sony TVs, and Hisense TVs.

Amazon’s Fire TV is also supported at launch, following a late deal between Disney and the retail giant. Search the app on your preferred device if it’s not linked in the box to the right, and you should find it.

A while back, we heard about a planned Disney Plus app for Nintendo Switch – but at launch, no such app exists.

The Simpsons on Disney Plus will be fixed in 2020

Unfortunately, earlier, pre-HD (i.e. best) episodes of The Simpsons are being cropped in on Disney Plus to make them fit a widescreen aspect ratio, therefore removing some of the excellent background jokes the animated sitcom is famous for.

Luckily Disney will add the original 4:3 aspect ratio in 2020 for seasons 1-19 and part of 20. This shows Disney is listening to criticism, which is encouraging.

Disney will eventually bring the service to the entire world, but rolled out over a two-year period. You could be waiting a while depending on where you live.

Disney Plus price and bundles explained

The Disney Plus price is $6.99 per month, or $69.99 per year in the US. The price is then $8.99 for both Canada and Australia (or $89.99 per year), while in New Zealand it’s $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year. In the Netherlands, the price is €6.99 per month, or €69.99 per year. In the UK, Disney Plus will cost £5.99 per month or £59.99 per year. We’ve created a comprehensive guide on the Disney Plus price tiers, to help you compare it to its rival streaming services.

You can also get Disney Plus with ESPN+ and Hulu in a bundle for a nice $12.99 per month.

All of this means the service is cheaper in the US than Netflix, for now at least. “I can say that our plan on the Disney side is to price this substantially below where Netflix is. That is in part reflective of the fact that it will have substantially less volume,” said Robert Iger, Disney’s chairman and CEO. “It’ll have a lot of high quality , because of the brands and the franchises that will be on it that we’ve talked about. But it’ll simply launch with less volume, and the price will reflect that.”

Iger also suggested that the price could rise gradually over time as the service grows, which wouldn’t be a massive surprise. This is exactly what has happened with Netflix as its investment in original content has escalated over the last few years.

Disney Plus streams to up to four devices simultaneously in 4K resolution and HDR (high dynamic range) at no extra cost – with up to seven user profiles on the platform. Not all content is available in 4K / HDR, of course, and naturally you’ll still need a 4K TV to watch the content that is. But since all of the original Star Wars films have launched on the service in 4K with Dolby Vision, that bodes well for future films that make the leap to Disney Plus.

Netflix, on the other hand, has a premium tier that grants access to 4K / HDR streams. The all-in-one nature of the subscription is appealing by comparison.

Disney Plus supports both Dolby Atmos as well as Dolby Vision, making it a fantastic choice for movie lovers.

Disney Plus: Marvel TV shows and movies

By summer 2021, you’ll see every single MCU movie on Disney Plus minus The Incredible Hulk and the two Spider-Man movies (the rights to those three belong to other studios – but it’s not impossible they’ll be licensed for Disney Plus). But the big draw of Disney Plus are original Marvel TV shows that will star your favorite superheroes, and they’ll officially be part of the MCU canon.

One report suggested these shows will have budgets of $25 million an episode. A first look at these shows is available on Disney Plus right now, in a special called Expanding the Universe.

The first of these MCU shows will be The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan), reportedly coming in August, around a year after Disney Plus goes live. It’ll be six episodes long, and will feature the return of Civil War’s Helmut Zemo (Daniel Bruhl). After that will be WandaVision, also coming in 2020, featuring Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany).

The numerous fans of Tom Hiddleston will be happy to hear that next in the new Marvel line-up will be the Loki TV show, a six-episode miniseries starring the trickster god. We also know from San Diego Comic-Con that the series will kick off after Loki’s sudden escape in Avengers: Endgame, via the Tesseract. No doubt he’ll get into plenty of mischief as a result. Expect that in 2021.

Then there’ll be a Hawkeye TV show, with Jeremy Renner reprising the role, and mentoring a new iteration of Hawkeye, Kate Bishop. Expect that in 2021 too. Other Disney Plus Marvel shows include Moon Knight, Ms Marvel and She-Hulk, but none of those have release dates yet.

Expect this to just be the start of Marvel’s expansion onto Disney Plus. And unlike the Defenders Netflix shows, they’ll unambiguously be part of the movies’ continuity.

Interestingly, there’s also going to be a Marvel TV show that puts a different spin on the MCU. Called Marvel’s What If…?, the animated series is based on a comics series where reality played out a little differently for our favorite superheroes and villains. Like how would Agent Peggy Carter have fared if she’d taken the super soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers? Many Marvel actors will be reprising their roles for this anthology show, making it much more than just a weird curio.

Disney Plus: Star Wars TV shows and films

You may remember that Disney bought Star Wars back in 2012, meaning it now has the rights to the entire library of movies, as well as the ability to make original programming set in that universe. Expect plenty of Star Wars films and TV shows on Disney Plus as a result. Every movie from Episodes 1-8 are now on Disney Plus in the US, with just The Rise of Skywalker and Solo left to be added later in 2020.

The first season of The Mandalorian is now complete, and it’s the first live-action Star Wars show, created by Jon Favreau. Baby Yoda steals the show, but it’s an incredibly entertaining slice of Star Wars regardless. This show has a rumored budget of $15 million per episode, and you can certainly tell from the level of effects on display. The Mandalorian season 2 is already on the way.

Two other live-action Star Wars shows will be exclusive to Disney Plus: a spin-off starring Rogue One’s Cassian Andor, and an Obi-Wan TV show featuring Ewan McGregor reprising the role. Don’t expect either until 2021 at the earliest.

Meanwhile, the seventh and final season of The Clone Wars comes to Disney Plus on February 20. You can watch the entire run of that show on Disney Plus, along with animated series Rebels, Resistance, and several Lego-themed spin-offs. The only missing piece is the 2D animated Clone Wars show. Hopefully that’ll be added someday.

There’s also a rumor about an as-yet-unannounced series featuring Star Wars spin-off character Doctor Aphra that may launch in 2020. We’re unsure if that’ll be the case – as with all rumors of this nature, treat it cautiously.

You can check out exactly what films and TV series are hitting the service in our Disney Plus Star Wars guide.

Disney Plus: The Simpsons and Fox content

Disney’s acquisition of Fox was a very, very big deal – especially for Disney Plus. James Cameron’s Avatar landed on day one, but Fox’s back catalogue is pretty extensive.

Fox own the rights to a huge amount of classic television, including The Simpsons, which means every episode from the first 30 seasons of the show has come to the service (minus the season three episode ‘Stark Raving Dad’ for reasons that’ll be obvious to fans).

Fox used to hold the keys to the X-Men franchise, putting big restrictions on the Marvel Cinematic Universe (such as the word ‘mutant’ never being used onscreen). The merger now means those characters can appear in the MCU, along with the Fantastic Four. They’re likely to be saved for movies rather than TV shows, but either way, one day you’re likely to see MCU projects based on both coming to Disney Plus.

It’s possible you’ll see some of Fox’s superhero movies come to the service, like the X-Men or Fantastic Four films.

Disney Plus has a selection of animated ’90s cartoon classics, like X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Spider-Man. Fox movies like The Princess Bride and The Sound of Music will come to the service eventually. You can expect a reboot of Home Alone coming down the pipe exclusive for the service, too, which we were all definitely asking for. Home Alone itself was on Disney Plus in the US in time for the holidays, but has since been removed, presumably for licensing reasons. It’ll likely return one day.

Expect the classic Fox sitcom Malcolm in the Middle to arrive at some point soon, too.

Other Disney Plus movies, shows, and exclusives

Marvel and Star Wars might be the highlights, but the Disney Plus originals extend far beyond superheroes and space. A gigantic selection of additional new shows and TV series are in the works, including a new Monsters Inc. project called Monsters at Work (coming in 2020), while the service launched with a mockumentary take on the evergreen High School Musical series that, brace yourself, is called High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Expect a new TV series based on classic movie Willow, with Warwick Davis reprising his role.

An original Christmas film called Noelle also arrived with Disney Plus at launch, starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader. Other original shows include Diary of a Future President, and the One Day in Disney series of shorts. Marvel Hero Project is a reality series about young community heroes.

For classic Disney lovers there’s a live-action remake of Lady and the Tramp available to stream, while ’90s animation fans will eventually get a new live-action Mulan that will hit both theaters and the streaming service. Deadline suggests that projects based on Don Quixote, Sword and the Stone, and 3 Men and a Baby are in the works, along with other projects titled The Paper Magician, Togo and Timmy Failure (the latter arrives in February).

Disney Plus will also be a home for DisneyNature documentaries, including Dolphin Reef – narrated by actress Natalie Portman. Disney Nature works both in documentary films and animation, and will also be bringing animated feature Penguins to the Disney Plus service. A documentary series called The World According to Jeff Goldblum is available now, with a second season on the way.

All of Disney Plus’s original shows will roll out on a weekly basis, unlike services like Netflix and Amazon where every episode tends to drop at once.

What is Disney Plus missing?

The Disney streaming service won’t have content from outside of the Disney ecosystem. The reason you see such a vast range of content on Hulu and Netflix is because they have a big web of licensing deals with external studios. Disney Plus is a more focused offering.

But, of course, Disney has plenty of content to draw from, especially with a slow drip of Fox movies and shows to come. It’s also worth noting that there won’t be any R-rated or adult-oriented content on the service. Expect mature-oriented Fox films to go to Hulu instead, according to a report from Deadline.

Even though Disney now owns Fox, for example, that doesn’t mean you’ll start seeing Deadpool swearing on Disney Plus. There’s talk, however, of a PG-13 take on Deadpool 2’s X-Force for the platform (via ComicBook). That hasn’t materialized yet, though.

Sorry, Deadpool, but you’re too adult for Disney Plus. (Image credit: Fox)

It’s pretty obvious, but the Marvel TV original series on Netflix won’t be crossing over to the new Disney Plus service – as far as we know. That means the likes of Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones won’t be rebooted on Disney Plus in their current iterations. They’ve all been axed anyway, but we can’t see them leaving Netflix any time soon. It’s possible you’ll see them return some day, but in different iterations as an official part of the MCU.

Disney Plus gift subscriptions: get a year of Disney Plus for a friend

If you want a great gift, Disney has introduced Disney+ Gift Subscriptions. For the same price as a yearly subscription, $69.99, you can gift a whole year of the streaming service to a friend. This only works for new customers, and doesn’t include the 7-day free trial. You also can’t purchase the Disney bundle with this, but it’s an ideal last-minute gift.

You can choose the day the gift subscription is sent to the recipient via email. The gift subscriptions are also be physically available in certain Disneyland and Walt Disney stores.

  • Best TV streaming service: We compared Hulu, Amazon Prime and more
  • Check out the Star Wars movies on Disney Plus for a complete release schedule

Original reporting by Andrew Hayward.

Disney Plus is out now in multiple countries around the world…. but not for everyone. The UK release date has recently been confirmed for March 24 and pricing has been confirmed too. With that in mind, it’s well worth revisiting everything there is to know about Disney Plus’ streaming service, including all the shows and movies currently available, as well as the various subscription options and compatible apps.

  • Disney Plus 7-day free trial – $6.99 p/m after
  • Disney Plus + ESPN + Hulu – $12.99 p/m

But that’s not all. There’s plenty more to get excited about. Over 300 movies from the likes of Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, and even several hidden gems from Disney’s vault, are all now available or coming over the next few months and years. The Mandalorian and Marvel Phase 4 series are just some of the highlights. Scroll down to check out, by a rough estimation, thousands of hours of content. Binge-watching will never be the same again. Here’s everything we know about Disney Plus.

Disney Plus UK release date confirmed

(Image credit: Disney)

Disney finally announced when the streaming service will come to the UK. Unfortunately, those in the UK will have to wait until March 24, and there’s an ominous warning that “titles may vary by territory.” That release date also holds for the majority of mainland Europe, including Germany, France, Italy, and Spain, with the promise of more being announced soon.

Why the delay? While Disney has said nothing official, it’s widely believed that a contract with Sky Movies, which currently hosts the majority of Disney movies in the UK, is the reason. Disney don’t want to launch without some of their major titles, and having the likes of Avengers and Lion King on Disney Plus in the UK would potentially break a binding contract with Sky.

The Disney Plus price is $6.99 / £5.99 a month

Image credit: Disney

The Disney Plus streaming service price… isn’t too bad, actually. It costs US subscribers a grand total of $6.99 per month, or $70 for an annual subscription (saving you around $14 compared to the rolling rate). This undercuts the current Netflix US subscription fee by nearly half, so it’s fair to say that Disney is coming out fighting. Cheap, right? Be sure to jump on the Disney Plus sign-up bandwagon now if you haven’t already.

A separate bundle is also for those looking to shell out a little more. For just $12.99 a month, you get access to Disney Plus, ESPN+, and Hulu. Bargain. You can find out more about that bundle (which is cheaper than 4K Netflix) on our Disney Plus bundle deal page.

UK Disney Plus pricing has only recently been confirmed, but it has landed in the area we expected, coming in a fair bit cheaper than Netflix. You can opt for a £5.99 a month subscription, or if you’d like to pay for a year upfront it costs £59.99, saving you £11.89 compared to buying monthly. You can’t pre-order Disney Plus yet, so you might just have to sign up on the day itself.

Disney Plus errors

Not even Disney can contend with 10 million subscribers all trying to bundle in and use Disney Plus on day one and across its opening weeks. The first few hours (and days) were littered with users being unable to log in and getting several different error codes, but thankfully it’s cleared up now.

For a breakdown of the more specific problems, be sure to check out our Disney Plus error guide, especially if you’re getting an “unable to connect” general error.

Disney Plus expiry dates: will shows and movies leave Disney Plus?

Disney may own a lot of things, but the minefield of licenses and rights contracts it has to navigate means that not everything is going to always be available on Disney Plus.

Some users have found Disney Plus expiry dates via datamining, which hint at when certain movies and shows might be leaving the service. Some are absurd (3001 for Aladdin? Good luck living to see that), while others such as The Princess and The Frog were reportedly going to leave on November 25. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case. Future titles may come and go, but nothing has left Disney Plus yet.

This is the most important question, right? What’s the point of paying for a streaming service if it doesn’t have some of the best exclusive slate of shows and movies available? Below, we’ll round up most of the future series, including new entries in both the Star Wars and Marvel universes.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will release in Fall 2020 on Disney+, which means it’s the very first MCU Phase 4 TV show. The series will see the newly-anointed Captain America, Sam Wilson, teaming up with Bucky Barnes. The Loki TV show, meanwhile, is coming in Spring 2021 alongside WandaVision, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, who reprises his role as Vision.

‘What If…?’ will arrive on the Disney Plus streaming service in Summer 2021, and will feature the animated return of several MCU stars, including Hayley Atwell’s Agent Carter. Hawkeye (starring Jeremy Renner) will be released in Fall 2021. Jeremy Renner is back as Clint Barton, and he’ll be training up his protege (and probable replacement), Kate Bishop.

Finally on the Marvel side of things, She-Hulk, Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel will all be getting their own shows, as confirmed at D23. Find out more about each in our round-up of the new Marvel TV shows heading your way in 2020 and beyond.

In a galaxy far, far away, an Star Wars spin-off series centred on Obi-Wan is coming, featuring the return of Ewan McGregor. There will also be a show featuring K-2SO and Cassian from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Then there’s finally The Mandalorian, which has most of the first season now available on the service and more episodes to come. Check out our Mandalorian release schedule for more on that.

That’s not all. Disney exclusives like High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (what a name!) coming to Disney Plus, while Disney’s recent acquisition of the FOX entertainment brand means the streaming service is the home of several brands previously attached to cable TV, including all 30 seasons of The Simpsons.

Disney CEO Bob Iger has also said reboots of Home Alone, Cheaper by the Dozen, Night at the Museum, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid are on the way.

Are Disney Plus shows and movies in their original format?

It varies on a case-by-case basis, but one of the major complaints so far has to do with certain alterations.

Seasons 1-19 of The Simpsons are now presented in a more modern-day 16:9 format compared to the 4:3 original. There are also a handful of changes to Star Wars on Disney Plus, including a baffling addition: Greedo saying “McClunkey” before meeting his end.

There are also other shows that have been stretched thanks to its aspect ratio (such as Rescue Rangers), while more insensitive cartoons from Disney’s history now come bundled with a disclaimer.

How important are the Disney Plus MCU shows?

Marvel hasn’t been shy in telling everyone just how crucial the slate of Disney+ streaming service MCU shows will be to the universe-at-large moving forward and, unlike other MCU shows, will actually be part of the main Phases.

Captain Marvel producer Mary Livanos has already pledged that the MCU shows on Disney Plus will “directly affect” what you see in the movies. The head of Marvel Studios himself, Kevin Feige, has also said that the new MCU series, potentially ones such as Falcon and the Winter Soldier, will interact with the movies “in a big way.”

So, unlike the Netflix Marvel shows of yore, the Disney Plus equivalent will be almost unmissable. That means that any MCU fan will need a Disney+ streaming service subscription to get the full picture.

The Marvel Phase 4 reveal at SDCC has given us a fuller picture of just how much the Disney Plus MCU shows will affect the properties on the big screen. Scarlet Witch, for example, is in WandaVision, as well as Doctor Strange’s sequel, Multiverse of Madness, within months of each other. Feig has also said the Loki series will directly affect Doctor Strange 2. We don’t know the story details yet, but don’t be surprised if time-travel antics are involved.

Disney Plus app: downloads and compatible devices

Image credit: Disney

Details about the Disney Plus app have been revealed – including what devices you will be able to stream from. At launch, the Disney Plus app will be available on Apple TV, Android devices, Chromecast, iPads and iPhones, PS4, Roku, and Xbox One.

As of writing, there is no Nintendo Switch Disney Plus app to speak of.

Here’s the full list of devices compatible with Disney Plus:

  • Amazon
  • Google
  • iOS
  • PS4
  • Roku
  • Xbox One

However, there is good news for those looking to watch on-the-go. As revealed by Disney Plus CEO Bob Iger, Disney Plus downloads will not only let you watch offline, you’ll also be able to keep content that gets removed from the service, just as long as you remain an active Disney Plus subscriber. Get ready to fill up those hard drives, folks!

And as for profiles: you can set seven separate users up on the Disney Plus app. There’s even an option for child-friendly profiles for those aged seven and under, complete with parental controls. And you can now have Baby Yoda as your profile pic.

Every Disney Plus TV show and movie

At launch, there are currently over 300 movies, including the likes of Moana and Frozen. For a breakdown, that includes: 18 Pixar movies, eight Star Wars movies (everything except Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which arrives on Decembe 26), and eight Marvel Studios movies (Iron Man, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel). An extra 100 movies are still set to come in 2020, including some or potentially all of the MCU movie collection, minus those standalones tied up with other studios (Spider-Man and Sony; Hulk and Universal)

But that’s not even close to scratching the surface of the sheer amount on offer. Classics such as Snow White, Pinocchio, and Fantasia are all there day one, plus nostalgia-filled series, such as the ’90s X-Men Animated Series are included as part of the Disney Plus package. For more on what’s coming this month, check out our new on Disney Plus update for December.

There are so many options, that it would be nigh-on impossible to include them all here. Instead, Disney has covered the hard yards and listed literally every single show and movie available on Disney Plus from launch day in probably the longest Twitter thread in history. Seriously. Anything you can think of is most likely there. The Simpsons, the vast majority of Pixar movies, and even some uber-weird offerings like The Shaggy D.A. The only notable absence so far appears to be Malcolm in the Middle’s entire run, which should come at a later date.

They even come with bonus features. Avengers: Endgame has a notable deleted scene, while there are bloopers, commentaries, and more available through some series and movies’ “Extras” section.

Bookmark it below and scroll at your leisure. It might take a while.

Plus, if you have a spare 197 minutes, there’s also the entire catalogue, in video form.

And that’s the entire Disney Plus catalogue – all wrapped in just over three hours… Looking for something a little different? Here’s our list of the most underrated shows and movies on Disney Plus. Happy streaming!
